I am trying to import the outlook express address book to the outlook address book, however it import only the contacts from the “main identity’s contacts” folder in my outlook express address book. It doesn’t import the other sub folders (which I create in the past) and it doesn’t import the folder called “shared contacts” . how can I do it ?

May be that is by design

What you can do is click on Shared contacts (to select it)
then go to file --> export --> other address book --> Text file (comma separated values) and then export as CSV file

Then open outlook.Go to file -->import and export --> Import from another program or file --> Select the above CSV file and then import

Yes.  That is by design.  That is also the approach I had to take when backing up to OL2002.  Export to Excel, CSV, DBF.

As you can see there are a number of ways of doing it, although it probably depends on the version of outlook and outlook express. For example, with OE6 and OL2000 you can simply open up an outlook session, open up the address book in OE and highlight all the contacts and drag and drop the contacts from OE into Outlook. This has the added advantage of allowing you to edit any of the contacts (if you need to) before saving them. The csv export/import is quicker, just depends how you want to do it and the versions you've got,
